Note:

Considered to be Bauer’s masterpiece. Along with his School for the Deaf and Dumb in Morganton, the huge brick edifice was one of the state’s premier examples of the Queen Anne style. It was demolished by the state as a site for an office building in 1967, but the site remains vacant and used for a parking lot as of 2008.
